Thanks to the contribution of 26 donors, we were able to improve the building conditions of the Taco Isla rural school (Santiago del Estero, Argentina), allowing the director Aldo Zerda, the teachers, and the 75 students to complete their classes in renovated classrooms. In addition, we managed to improve the sanitary conditions of the school, reconditioning its bathrooms and improving the rainwater collection system to ensure the supply of clear water. The project required 4 months of hard work, during which the school's walls, ceilings, and bathrooms were repaired. For this, we have the support of a local supplier who, together with his team, carried out the required repairs. Although the weather conditions and the location of the school (very far from nearby urban centers) made the tasks extremely difficult, the team was able to make the reparations before the end of the school year. This project was part of the Rural Education Support program, which the Foundation has been carrying out in Santiago del Estero since 2011 intending to improve the education of rural children.
